"American Royalty" by Sam Spratt commissioned by Childish Gambino

Sam Spratt’s commissioned illustrations for actor/rapper Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino.

"What began as cover art for his mixtape ‘Royalty’ evolved into a series of Rockwell-esque vignettes on Americana meant to highlight the side of hip-hop that tends to take a back seat to “money, cars, and jewelry” – where you come from.

The collection of 10 illustrations cover a wide-spectrum of the little moments – the struggles, the simple pleasures, the risks, the irony, the humor, the hopes, and the realities of the American life that maybe isn’t quite so cookie cutter.” Prints available at royalty.samspratt.com.

The newyorker is giving free access to their archives going back to 2007, and it inspired us to compile a short but hot list of must-reads for the rest of the summer. The website also has a new design that makes it easier to read long-forms like the ones listed below. Most of these selected…

So, here’s a thing I’ve seen happen:

  • People get really into social justice theory
  • and then they read a lot from people who all agree with each other
  • and then they assume that everyone in that group agrees
  • and then, when they encounter someone in that group who doesn’t…

If Wishes Were Horses, Then You Would Check Your Privilege

When I point out your privilege

You getting up and walking away

Just further proves my point

I wish I had the privilege to walk away from my skin

To conveniently forget

But the universe wouldn’t have it that way

I have to remember

My color

My gender

My sexuality

My appearance

Before anyone else does

I can’t simply forget

Who lives next door to me

I can’t simply ignore

Who walks down the street behind me

I can’t run in my neighborhood

For fear of being stopped and frisked

And unjustly arrested

But you can

And you laugh, free as a bird

Privilege makes it easy to find amusement

In pain you’ll never know

And never give a shit about

When I tell you I don’t have the privilege

You ignore me

And remind me

That you do
